Travis Morgan is thrilled to encounter the one woman who's never failed to get his blood pumping. Seeing Alicia Davis again brings it all back: their fierce academic rivalry, and the fact that he never followed through on his erotic fantasies about her.

Alicia can't resist Travis's smoldering sensuality—or the opportunity to finally bed the man who starred in so many of her

Lady Raven RAVE!

3.5*** STARS

Intimacy Level: VERY SPICY
Enjoyment: GOOD


I had different emotions while reading No Reservations. I enjoyed the physical interaction between Alicia and Travis, however, the storyline wasn't as gripping for me personally. Alica and Travis has a past as they've known each other since college. For both, each was the one that got away, but what makes them more interesting, they had a sort of sexual attraction rivalry as well, which seems to continue once they rec
Considering how short this story is I am surprised how much other than sex they managed to pack it. The sex obviously was the main focus of the story and it was pretty spicy. They managed to throw in some D/s action, anal play & bondage on top of the vanilla sex which considering it is so short that is really impressive.

I have never rated a short story more than 3 stars and i wont today, i will say though that is was good, entertaining & sexy.

I would recommend this book and i would rea

This was quick and fun! I loved the idea of a woman scorned wanting to seek revenge. The cat and mouse games between Travis and Alicia were hot and sexy. The chemistry between Alicia and Travis melted the pages. And for such a short story, the amount of sex scenes the reader gets is pretty amazing. They were smoking hot! However, I wish the story was a little more developed - a little longer for me to be able to form a connection with the characters.

Overall, this was a hot and quick read. I reco

This was a fun fast read with two winning characters whose unfinished business kept getting in the way of the happy-ever-after they didn’t even know they wanted. The setup was simple: Travis needed to fly home immediately, Alicia was the only one with available seats with her business jet service. They’d been attracted to each other back in college, but their cut throat competitions for

No Reservations was a darling little romp of a read...cute, quick and hot!

Travis and Alicia went to college together where they often competed against one another in everything from class projects to drinking games. They never went beyond this competition, however. And now, when they unexpectedly land in each others' lives several years later, Alicia sees Travis as a regret that she'd like to rectify. Travis, too, always wished he'd made his move on Alicia and is more than willing to engage her

My Review:
Okay, big hint when going into this book. It's only 15,000 words and erotica. No, there's not a whole lot of story line to this one, but what is there is pretty decent. Back in college when Travis and Alicia knew each other, they had a competitive relationship. When they reconnect so does that relationship. Their bedroom play definitely has an edge to it that reflects that, which is fun. They have moments of playfulness, especially at the end of the novella that I really loved.

Fun, super sexy and fast story.

I’ve never read anything by Lilly Cain, but when I saw this up on NetGalley, I knew I had to read it. No Reservations is a novella length story and was a fun and sexy read.

I have to say I really liked both Alicia and Travis, and liked them together even more. The fact Alicia wanted to get Travis back for something from college was a little funny to me. I will say I loved they both were attracted to one another in college, yet never got a chance to act on it. Luckil

I had higher hopes for this. I mean, revenge smut...yes, please.

Alicia and Travis (on a side note, I had to go back and look up his name because I had already forgotten...not a good sign) had a competitive relationship in college -- mostly academic, but there was some unresolved attraction thrown in. For whatever reason, he didn't respond to a message/invitation she sent him and she had felt like a woman scorned ever since.

So of course, they run in to each other, have lots of sex and all is forg

I really expected to enjoy this one but, sadly, ended up really not liking the characters at all but it does have some fairly intense erotic scenes.

This was a good and short sexy read.

Travis knows Alicia since college, and it's been years since the last time he crossed paths with her. He is really stressed out and is looking forward to seeing his friends over the weekend, well that is if he can find a flight. It just so happens everything is booked, and no matter his demands or bribes for that matter, it doesn't look like he is going anywhere.

Alicia gets on the phone to deal with the customer demanding to speak with the boss, and is surpri

Review posted at Books to Brighten your Mood

When I read the premise of No Reservations, I instantly got the impression that we were talking about a seriously hot and cute romantic story. Rivals as students, Travis and Alicia meet each other after many years, and all the passion their rivalry was hiding, suddenly explodes. The premise couldn't be more misleading I'm afraid... Because although the story is in truth that, No Reservations is so small that no story actually unfolds. There's just sex.

No Reservations is a quick read and while I enjoyed it I felt like it was lacking something.

Alicia and Travis knew each other since college. They've always been competitive and were always trying to best each other. Now after years of not seeing each other, they meet again. They've always felt the sexual tension between each other but now they're finally going to do something about it.

The story was pretty short and full of sex. And while I loved how they already had the connections so we didn't

This was my first book by Lilly Cain. I chose to read it for a few reasons. The first reason is that it is published by Carina Press and I have had pretty good luck with their authors. Another reason was that it is a novella and so could be quickly read. I like novellas because you get a taste for the author’s style without having to invest in a full-length novel without knowing if

2.5 stars ... I rounded to three cuz it entertained me.

So... No Reservations is a novella. Travis Morgan needs to get to Boston last minute and there are no flights. He throws himself on the mercy of Alicia Davis. The girl he lusted after in college and hasn't seen since. Little does he know that Alicia had the same feelings towards him.

She makes a deal to get him onto one of her charter's but she wants one night with him.

Here's where I got confused. In chapter 2 she says It should feel good,

No Reservations by Lilly Cain (Bad Girls Know #1) was a quicky bedtime story. When I say bedtime story, I don’t mean sleepy time, I mean lady porn! If you know you need to get in the mood for some sexy times, pick this up about an hour before. It’s light on story, heavy on sex.

Travis and Alicia had a big academic rivalry in college. They both had fantasies about each other, but never acted upon them. Cut to 10 years later. Travis nee

2 1/2 stars - rounded up here on GR.

This novella was a quick but annoying read. The story revolves around Travis Morgan and Alicia Davis, two old college rivals that meet up again in the future when Travis is in desperate need of transportation to Boston.

The dialogue was pretty good; fast, quick quips and good-natured teasing, but to be honest, the plot kind of dragged a little bit.

Alicia mistakenly thinks that Travis sabotaged her back in college and is now paying him back in kind. The entire t

Sometimes you just need to let go. But Alicia Davis hasn't quite learned that lesson. As it turns out, that may not be a bad thing, because her determination to get back at Travis Morgan brings her a whole range of satisfaction.

This little novella packs some hot sex, but not much else. Yeah, there is a plot in here somewhere, but it is inconsequential. Alicia holds a grudge against Travis for something a bit nebulous that happened when they were in college. He, of course, is oblivious. When he e

In college Alicia dreamed of having Travis to herself but never seemed to catch his eye in the dating department, or so it seemed. They kept each other in check with their competitive natures but this never spilled into the bedroom much to Alicia's disappointment.

Roll forward several years....

Travis needs to book a flight for a yearly reunion with his college buddies and soon realizes Alicia is his only hope for a flight. After wishing he could have had her in college he decides time to make up

Very quick review for a very very quick read.

Alicia always wanted Travis for herself but it never happened when they were both in college. They pushed each other with their competitive natures but she never seemed to catch his eye otherwise… Now she has a chance to get even with him by holding a chance for her private plane service to get him to his weekend with the boys… A quick hot night happens which she runs away from the next morning even though she wanted to stay.

I read this short story/novella in a day, and had to write my review right away because I know tomorrow I'll have forgotten what I read. And that pretty much sums it up for me. It was certainly pleasant, but nothing outstanding (good or bad). I think that's because it is about 90% sex and while that is smoking hot and at times unusual and varied, it's not enough for me in a book. There was such great potential in Alicia and Travis' relationship - I loved the idea of a woman (possibly unintention

Travis and Alicia were rivals in college. Both were smart and business minded. Alicia came on to him once at the end of senior year and he turned her down. When he calls her company 10 years later for a last minute flight to Boston to see his friends. She sees her opportunity to get what she wants (his bod) and to finally get back at him from the rejection all those years ago.

So this is incredibly short! You could read it in like an hour or two. My only complaint with this book is that it’s too

This was a NetGalley book.

I thought it was cute short story/novella, I guess is what you would call it. Sweet. Not much else to say because there wasn't a whole lot of story. But the author did a good job of giving enough back story so you know where these characters are coming from. I would have continued to read if it was a more involved story. I like her writing and how she tells the story. Not so much into fantasy at this time, though I have been in the past so not sure if I will read her ot

I liked the story, but I definitely wish it had been longer. The chemistry between Travis and Alicia was pretty intense and the love scenes were very steamy. I just didn't care for the ending. I was left with the sense that the competitiveness between the couple would eventually be their downfall. Despite that, it was very well written and I look know I will be looking up more books by this new to me author.

I mostly enjoyed No Reservation's enemies-to-lovers story. Although it's only 40 pages or so most of those 40 pages have sex scenes! With any kind of short-ish story it left me with a "I wanted more" kind of feeling. Although I liked their competitiveness and their scenes together were scorching hot but I really need more of a story to really enjoy a book.

I'm glad this was a short book or I might have stopped reading it. If you want a quick and easy, quick-to-bed predictable story, delve into No Reservations. It's a great book for a reader who wants more sex scenes than character development and more predictability than plot line.
